Bulimia refers to binging and purging. In other words it means you stuff yourself with food and puke it out. Anorexia is self starvation. Anorexics are usually more sickly looking than bulimics and are treated as inpatients, while bulimics are treated as outpatients, but both are fatal and can cause severe problems. Then there's gluttony, which is eating excessive amounts of food, and having an addiction or emotional attachment to it. All three are diseases that typically start with your mind or emotions. An anorexic person does not have to be 60 pounds and dying to be considered an anorexic. There's also another eating disorder called pica, which involves eating non-food substances.
